FINE ANTIQUE 19C MULTI LOBED FIJIAN ULA THROWING WAR CLUB V LARGE HEAD
I will be selling a very large number of interesting antiques including Tribal art, Chinese, Japanese, and European antiques. I will possibly be selling over two days so please check again on FRIDAY as there may be more pieces for sale. PLEASE NOTE: This sale is in GB Pounds Sterling.
This is a fabulous and quite rare ula and one of several clubs I am selling this week. The root ball head is very large and multi lobed with a further set of smaller lobes both above and below. It has a good patina, particularly to the handle end and certainly dates to the 19th Century. The butt is deeply recessed, probably for marine tooth inlay. It is a beautiful club in very good overall condition with the only damage age related splits in the wood and light losses and wear to the head through use as photographed. Please also check out the Native American antiques and Tongan club I am selling this week.
Please read down the entire listing for Dimensions, Condition, Postage & Payment Details - most of the information you will need is here on this page but please get in touch if you don't find what you are looking for.

Postage & Packing
For your peace of mind and mine items will be sent fully insured. I will be posting from WEDNESDAY 24TH APRIL to Monday 29TH APRIL so please make payment as early as possible. PLEASE be a little patient with the post - I will get them posted asap but I work on my own, often have a fair amount to post and I do pack carefully. I also post in the order that things are paid for.
Any delays by the postal services either at my end or abroad are rarely my fault. I always post out at the latest 3 working days after receiving cleared payment but sometimes an item is slowed up by a backlog of post or delayed whilst being processed through customs. To give you an idea it generally takes about 3-7 working days within Europe and 9 - 14 working days to the U.S. / rest of the world. If speed is of the essence then I can use a courier (DHL / FEDEX etc.) but prices for couriers start at around £30 / £40GBP for the very smallest object and VERY quickly escalate depending on size, weight and destination. Please note also that there has been a considerable hike in postage prices by the Royal Mail this year. I add on very little, often not enough to cover the packaging materials, so the price I quote really is as fair as possible.

Where possible I will of course combine shipping for multiple purchases (however if, for example, you win a walking stick and a box of some description this wouldn't be very practical!).
